Fire services expect to be battling gorse fires for at least another week on Mt. Leinster

Carlow fire services are expecting to be battling gorse fires on Mount Leinster for at least another week.

Last week units from Bagenalstown were called out to quench what they termed “miles of gorse fire” on the mountain.

There were also reportedly large fires seen on Mount Brandon outside Graiguenmanagh over the past number of days.
